Fall Guys won’t be on Steam during Season 1, but updates will continue

Fall Guys will leave Steam for good on June 21, 2022 and will move to the Epic Gaming Store.

Developer Mediatonic is now owned by Epic Games. It goes without saying that Epic Games would benefit more from having the game on their own launcher.

Fortunately, fans will still be able to keep their copy of Fall Guys once they’ve made the purchase on Steam. However, this raises a number of questions, particularly regarding the title’s transition to a free-to-play model and future updates. It’s just that the day the game is removed from Steam is also the day it goes into a new season.

However, Mediatonic has made it clear: Steam users will still get full support even after the game has moved to its new home.

Fall Guys has confirmed to have full crossplay and cross-progression support, provided players’ Epic Games accounts are linked

In an official Steam post, developer Mediatonic addressed the elephant in the room. They clarified that Steam users would keep their copy of Fall Guys. More importantly, these users will continue to receive updates to their game well into the future.

Here’s what Mediatonic had to say about this:

“Anyone who already owns the game can rest assured that you’ll continue to receive full support and all the tasty updates hitting other platforms, including crossplay and cross-progression support.

“Please note, however, that after 1:00 AM EST on June 21, new players will no longer be able to purchase and download Fall Guys on Steam, and the product page will no longer appear in the store.”

This means that even if players don’t buy (or already own) the game on Steam, Season 1: Free For All will still be available to them when it launches on June 21, 2022.

The most important piece of information, of course, is the addition of crossplay and cross-progress support.

Fall Guys has full crossplay and cross-progression support. This will allow anyone from all supported platforms to play together with each other, provided their Epic Games account is linked.

The entire transition marks a major milestone for the game, which was in its sixth season by the time the decision was made to go free-to-play. It’s now entering a new era in the Epic Games Store, so it makes sense to just start the seasons over.
